Ruined by awful narration

I have consumed dozens of audiobooks, some better than others, but this is by far the most difficult to listen to.

The narrator uses no meaningful inflection, instead inserts pauses as, if there were, commas randomly inserted between, every 2 to 3 words, and completely breaks, up phrasing and, flow so that meaning is mind, numbingly difficult to ascertain.

It sounds as if he is simply reading a long list of random words instead of a professionally written and edited business book aimed at ambitious entrepreneurs and business people.

I don’t think the narration would have been any worse had an inhuman robot text reader been given the task.

I somehow managed to struggle through the opening note and the first chapter, but I had to keep pausing the audio because it was so difficult to follow. A few paragraphs into chapter 2, I had to stop.

The irony is not lossy on me that a book titled “Speak to Sell“ has such an awful narrator reading the text.
So awful in fact, it rendered audio version of this book insufferable.

I recently discovered Dan Kennedy and just finished the audible version of No BS Selling to the Affluent Which I highly recommend. Inspired, I was very much looking forward to this one, as I have started an education business and I plan to sell courses and workshops via online webinars.

Because I have faith in the teachings of Dan Kennedy, I have ordered the printed copy of this book and will attempt to learn from that instead. If it is as good as I expected to be, I would likely create my own audio version to play on long drives and while traveling.

Horrible Narration

I can’t get to the content because the reader sounds like he’s imitating a bot.

Definitely a game changer... selling is Key

As a business owner this book really opened my eyes to the power of my voice and my story. The plan is to read everything from Kennedy and sharpen my selling skills actively. now the actual reading of the book by the narrator was suspect.. I had to listen over that but I go the message.. lol

nothing earth shattering

If you've worked in sales nothing here is earth shattering. nothing really "new" but its always good to go over the basics.

if you haven't done sales before, I'd say its worth a listen
